Describe what you intend to do and how you'll do it in one sentence (required 250 Characters)

Mothers of children vaccinating their children receive a unique piece of jewelry, such as a silver pendant. With each new vaccination, the pendant is replaced with a more “status” one.

Explain the idea (less than 2,000 characters)

As a rule, mothers of children deal with vaccination issues. And every mother, regardless of place of residence, wants to have healthy children, and to be loved and respected herself. According to this, after the first vaccination, it is proposed to give the mother or guardian of the child a silver pendant of a special make, which she can wear both as decoration and as a status sign. Pendants are made of silver. In the alternative case, non-jewelry silver alloys can be used to make pendants. At current silver prices, the cost of the pendant does not substantially increase the cost of the vaccination itself. After each new vaccination, the pendant is exchanged for a higher tier pendant. Although it is possible that a new pendant is added to the necklace. Another option is to stamp a new mark on the pendant. All depends on the specifics of the region and its customs. Plus, the society can legally provide minor benefits for owners of "vaccination" pendants. The specific benefits in each region will be different, depending on the cultural specifics. Silver pendant will fit into any style of clothing. Thus, not vaccinating children will become a incivility.

How is the idea unique? (750 Characters)

The advantage of this idea is that we do not save costs on where cheaping out is very risky. Only from an economic point of view - a vaccine costs a few dollars, the lack of a vaccination can cause losses in the hundreds or even thousands of dollars per capita. Plus the risk of death. Why not add another dollar to the price of vaccinations and stimulate people using their natural desire to be beautiful and respected?
